More work for FDs

It’s a given that FDs are not known for their love of technology. Most see ‘version 10.1.2’ of their accounting application as a cost they could well do without.

But FDs of tech firms are much more IT-savvy. ­ SAP and Oracle finance chiefs will often put their ‘sales hats’ on and spend a lot of time with FDs of prospective and current clients. But imagine them sat with your tech guys implementing said 10.1.2?

Well, during the launch of Enterprise CRM, a new UK partner of on-demand software company Salesforce, TS discovered that ALL their staff must be accredited with Salesforce, ie, able to do the techy implementation work ­ and that includes the FD Daragh Mulchay.

TS wonders how much they pay the cleaners.
